The Leschetizky Association

Celebrating a Living Legacy of Classical Piano

It’s sublime when a masterful pianist performs a timeless piece of classical music. The soul of the music comes alive and resonates in the space between artist, piano and audience. We vividly experience the present moment while viscerally connecting with a musical lineage from centuries past.

Since 1942, the Leschetizky Association has been devoted to uplifting live classical piano performance in the lineage of Theodor Leschetizky, one of the greatest piano pedagogues of all time.

Through our concert series featuring concert artist members, our concerto competition, educational events, and social gatherings, the Leschetizky Association aims to: 

Join Us!

The musical descendants of Leschetizky have gathered for decades to participate in this tradition of musical mastery that reaches back to Beethoven.

We now welcome classical piano appreciators, performers, students and teachers of all ages to join our association, and benefit from this prodigious heritage that continues to flourish today. 

Live music moves the soul, and it’s even more poignant when experienced in intimate settings with a community of like-minded enthusiasts.

We offer a full schedule of events throughout the year where you will find opportunities to connect with fellow piano aficionados and enjoy outstanding live performances.


The Leschetizky Association offers a variety of programs to perpetuate and renew our classical music legacy for our members, their students, and the public. Above all, we seek the continuation of the musical spirit that the great piano pedagogue, Theodor Leschetizky, created in his Vienna studio.

Your support makes this all possible. Thank you!
